PINE BLUFF, AR -- Members of a Pine Bluff church celebrate an important milestone.

The St. John AME Church is 146 years old.

Members celebrated the anniversary through song and worship.

"We asked members to submit artifacts and they did. And it's absolutely wonderful, just a learning experience about people in Pine Bluff and Saint John," Flowers said.
